Cats from Tokyo {Japan}

What could be more fitting than a cemetery post for All Saints' Day?  This photo series by Alexandre Bonnefoy was taken at the Yanaka Cemetery in Tokyo, Japan, and appeared in the book Neko Land.

“The Yanaka Cemetery and the surrounding streets, south of the Nippori station in Tokyo, are the mark of a large number of cats. The area is even known for this, and many small shops are overflowing with cat-related products. When the sun sets, the cats can be found in large numbers at the cemetery to hold a siesta on the tombs.”

  8. The cats make this graveyard look beautiful! It is amazing how comfortable they seem. They just don't have the same fears about the dead.

  9. My friend, I don't know why, but it usually takes around 10 tries to comment on your blog page. I don't know why? I keep having to close it down and open it up. I keep pressing add comment and then finally, usually I can comment. I am letting you know this, because sometimes, I give up! LOL! This is the only page it happens to me on, and I don't know why??
    I love the cats on this post! They are so precious!!!
